    When their first album, A Town Called Addis, was released back in 2008, it was hailed as one of the most inventive fusion albums of the year, with its blend of contemporary and traditional Ethiopian styles, jazz and dub reggae. This may have started out as a studio-based project, but Dub Colossus went on to prove that they were also a rousing live band. The original aim of Dub Colossus was to combine the golden years of Ethiopique beats and Ethiojazz with the dub reggae styles of the early 1970s groups like Abyssinians and Mighty Diamonds. This latest version of the Dub Colossus live experience is designed to move the dance floor in an uncompromising fashion, though still keeping that unmistakeable Ethiopian flavour.
